Chewie stands taller-than-the-other-Wookie in the Dubstep scene at the moment,
blowing out eardrums 'round the globe from his outpost down under. This UK
transplant graces Paradise Lost with a vicious, apocalyptic EP of razor-sharp
basslines and ominous textures that will kick you in the gut 140 times per minute.
Title track 'Survival' is built in the run-and-gun style, mixing Chewie's patented
writhing basslines with sci-fi textures and soundscapes of doom into a maelstrom of
sonic badness that will weed out the weak-at-heart from the dancefloor. 'Outpost
31' takes things to a colder, steppy level and is the sort of psychological mind-f**k of
a tune that one might rock out to in an Antartic outpost being infiltrated by
shapeshifting aliens (Outpost 31... anyone???). The flipside sees Riskotheque
taking the reigns on his remix rendition of 'Survival', delivering a deeper, darker,
techier variation on the original's epic theme - deadly stuff in the original Risko stylee!
Finally, 'Slipstream' is full-on, raving-off-yer-head mayhem, but with a level of quality
that those producing "popular" Dubstep at the moment can only ever hope to attain.
As a bonus exclusive to the digital release, 'Adagio For Dub' combines a well-known
classical theme with trademark bassline science and floorshredding beats. All this
adds up to the total package of dancefloor destruction and is brought to you by your
dear friends at Paradise Lost and man-of-the-moment Chewie. Cop it!
